Obama Administration Accused Again of Concealing Bush-Era Crimes

Matt Renner, Truthout: "On January 21, Obama signed an executive order instructing all federal agencies and departments to 'adopt a presumption in favor' of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and promised to make the federal government more transparent ... But since that time, the Obama administration has sought to conceal information in several high-profile court cases, in an effort that civil libertarians say amounts to covering up crimes committed by the Bush administration."


The Myth of "America"

Dahr Jamail and Jason Coppola, Truthout: "In 1892, the National Council of Churches, the largest ecumenical body in the United States, is known to have exhorted Christians to refrain from celebrating the Columbus quincentennial, saying, 'What represented newness of freedom, hope, and opportunity for some was the occasion for oppression, degradation and genocide for others.' Yet America continues to celebrate 'Columbus Day.'"


Obama at the Precipice: Tough Guys Don't Need to Dance in Afghanistan

Willian Astore, TomDispatch.com: "It's early in 1965, and President Lyndon B. Johnson faces a critical decision. Should he escalate in Vietnam? Should he say 'yes' to the request from U.S. commanders for more troops? Or should he change strategy, downsize the American commitment, even withdraw completely, a decision that would help him focus on his top domestic priority, 'The Great Society' he hopes to build?"


The Price of Peace

Jerica Arents, Truthout: "While waiting to be processed at the Anacostia Park Police Station, I was drawn to a mounted, post-9/11, Bush-era FBI reward poster. 'The Cost of Freedom is Eternal Vigilance,' propagated the sign. The unrestrained madness is as prevalent today as it was eight years ago: Obama is continuing Bush's war folly."


He Won Because He Speaks of Peace

Andrew Stelzer, Truthout: "He won because he spoke about peace and people listened. That is rare. The whole world listened, and is still listening to this man who speaks of peace, who clearly believes in it, although his actions don't always seem to move towards that goal. Think of how few people have spoken about peace, from the heart, and had the world pay attention. It happens rarely. And it's part of why we fall so short of peace."
